Distributing zakaat

Question ID: 28273

As Salaam u Alaikum,

I am having difficulty in finding a way to distribute my zakaat. I normally give it to Africa Muslims Agency, I see on their website that they possibly use it for feeding schemes, but according to a Q&A session on Radio Al Ansaar, the Mufti said, raw food and not cooked food can be given as zakaat as ownership has to pass to the person you are giving zakaat to.
please advise as soon as possible.
If you can give a list of organisations that I can give my zakaat to, it would be appreciated.
will you please email your response to me.

Give those organisations that have Ulema on board who are on decision making positions.
